Location: North Tonawanda, NY
Shape: Oval
Large oval shaped object spotted with lights that had the appearance of shooting stars but it wasn't.

A fairly large aircraft was sighted flying above North Tonawanda. At first it had the appearance of several shooting stars. However, they where going the wrong direction. After watching it for a few moments it became clear that the light where attached to a fairly large aircraft that did not look like a airplane. In fact, it seemed 5 times larger than any typical airplane. The aircraft seemed to of had a elongated oval shape to it when the dark areas became more visible from the moonlight. It appeared to have three white lights to the rear when fairly even spacing in between. The brighter lights had a hazy streak of dimmer light going from the rear towards the front.
